Evening Pupil Recital

Category: Music

Towards the end of a dynamic and flamboyant Lent Term of music making came the Evening Pupils' Recital, yielding as expected a fine display of musical talent. There was an impressive mix of Music Scholars and non Music Scholars on show, with 'new' arrivals in the Shell making their debuts in this context. To single out individuals for special praise from such an array is perhaps unfair, but nevertheless particular mention should on this occasion be given to Hattie Cockerill (oboe), Emily Taplin (voice), Sophie Payne (trumpet), Emily Venn (flute), Amelia Drew (violin) and the Marlborough College Brass Quintet (Sophie Payne, Ellen Arkwright, Frances Leith, Joe Arkwright and Archie Lynas) for outstanding contributions to a memorable evening. In the midst of such a demanding term for all the performers on show, this was a terrific effort for which they and their respective instrumental teachers should feel justly proud.
